Infos & Booking


After having climbed the "discovery" part of this via ferrata of Roche Veyrand in Chartreuse, I propose you to go on with the second part, much more difficult, impressive and vertiginous.

Above Saint-Pierre-d'Entremont, you start by going around a small boulder to reach the footbridge of the "Pas de la Frousse", 40 meters long and slightly uphill. Then a pillar allows you to reach a ledge where there are several caves (very appreciable in summer). You then go around another pillar to continue to cross the ledge, in a very very vertiginous atmosphere, until the "pont des Balmes". Shortly after, it is time to go back up, in a vertical section, and even overhanging in its middle. A ledge follows, a chimney of a few meters and a crossing under a roof before approaching the last overhang, with more than 200 meters of void under your feet. A final easy slab leads to the end of the cabled route. A last effort of about fifteen minutes to reach the top of Roche Veyrand will reward you with an incredible panorama on the Chartreuse summits before the walk back to the car.
